Shout Out your Family Favorites

Help us show some love to your favorite local businesses! From dance studios and splash pads to restaurants and attractions (and even family restrooms!), our reader-voted Family Favorites awards make it easy for OKC parents to find the best local resources. Nominate your favorites from March 24 – April 14. Then vote to determine the winners from May 5 to 19.

The winners and two finalists will be highlighted in our Everything Guide, which will be published in July. Thanks for helping us uplift local businesses!

Nominate a Cool Pop

What’s the best advice your dad, grandpa or a father figure has given you? From the sentimental to the silly, our readers shared their stories about the supportive Cool Pops in your life. The top five submissions will be shared in our May/June issue, and you’ll have a chance to vote on your favorite in May.

The best five entries will be featured in the May/June issue of MetroFamily, and will also receive gift cards from Red Coyote and Elemental Coffee, a six-pack from Anthem Brewery and a MetroFamily Insiders subscription. The reader-voted winning entry will also receive a $250 total bike tune-up prize package from Sun & Ski Sports. Voting will be open May 1 – 31.

In a study by NWEA MAP Growth, children in 3rd to 5th grades were shown to have lost about 20 percent of their school-year gains in reading during summer break. The good news is that fighting this statistic isn’t hard! Talk to kids about reading and make it fun by participating in our Summer Reading Book Bracket. Vote weekly on your favorites and watch some classic favorites and some local features rise to the top!

Ten winners will be randomly selected to win a package of prizes including fun new books, a mug from the Metro Library systems, a travel package and a year-long MetroFamily Insider subscription. Gain inspiration for your own summer reading list and vote weekly to increase your chances of being selected as a winner. Good luck!

Families will vote for their favorites weekly from May 1 – 31.
